Dungeon A-314 by rcpktk Dungeon A-314 by rcpktk
This is our (dungeon) room in dormitory no. 314 (seems tidy, actually it is not) and this is my very first pixel art!! :) I am sure there are many mistakes that I could not notice.. Also, I still can not handle rounded objects and shadings.. I hope I'll submit much better pieces :)

I really NEED advanced critique ;)

hmm.. ok, so here goes advanced CC...

1) overall drawing looks really really good, the main thing missing is the shadowing on the floor. thats tough to do, but once you get the practice, it wont be that hard

2) you could do some wood texture on the furniture to get a more realistic look

3) do the shading colors darker... it usually gives a more dramatic and realistic look

4) use a light color on inner contours of the furniture, just like u did on the computer and tv... itll look better

Very nice work. You could just add some shadows and textures maybe (talking about the furniture, is it wooden ?). Very good start I must say :)

I am such a fool to forget the text that I copied to paste :stupidme: Here is what I wanted to post:

Thanks!! :)

Well yeah it's wooden.. But, for shading and textures, I don't know what to do :( All the tutorials around the net just tell about the logic.. But when it comes to the software, I don't know.. For example, I use adobe imageready, might use semi-transparent layers for shadows but I have no idea about adding textures :( Masking maybe?? But, one thing I am sure, nobody can do all these dithering and texturing things pixel by pixel, I feel like I am close to find the trick out :D

Well well well... I use old PaintShop 4 which doesn't have many functions (it doesn't even have layers) but the software is not that important I guess. About the shadows - I simply outline the area where the shadow is casted and then take the colors from that area, darken them and redraw/refill the area. Usually simple. Textures and dithering ? Well, the truth is that I DO it pixel by pixel (and draw some line and fill it here and there)... there's no trick to it. I know some people use layers and filters and stuff (to do glass things and windows for example) but I simply don't. You can (and maybe should ?) do pixel art without these 'advanced tools'... it only requires some time and patience...

pixel by pixel?? :eyepopping: That's more than patience I guess.. And also, dithers for example.. How can you do rounded dithering without using any effects?? If that also has to be done pixel by pixel, I seriously have a looong way to go.. :hmm:

Actually I have no clue about what effect you want to use for rounded dithering ? Can't think about any that would help... and yeah, you're right, it's not patience, it's obsession :) All in all this is my way of making pixel-art, if you ask someone else, well, they maybe do use effects, I don't know. It's just that you must think about it and try to realize where lights/shadows should be. Looking at some models/objects from the right angle for example helps a lot. Grab some item you have in your room, place it on your table, observe it carefully, look where the shadows are and try to make an iso pixel-art. I'm sure you know the basics/principle of dithering so the only thing you need is a bit of practise. Just remember to use as few colors as possible... well, hope this helped a little :)

Not so many round objects here, so I guess it's OK ;)

I like the chairs.
